Welcome to Travel Week, a seven-day stretch where we celebrate our wanderlust with the best buys on everything from stylish packing cubes to keep you organized to once-in-a-lifetime vacations. Whether you’re planning a local staycation or traveling across the world, adventure awaits. Away we go!
After choosing how to spell it, finding a good duffel (duffle?) bag should be priority No. 1 when it comes to travel gear. A duffel/weekender/hands-free carry-on should be just oversized and flexible enough to fulfill all your overpacking dreams without having to dedicate yourself to a bulkier roller suitcase. But considering the differences in durability, size, weight distribution, and (equally as important) style, a travel bag can make or break even the shortest of trips. After all, the last thing you need to face mid-travel is back pain from uncomfortable straps or your cheap, nylon number ripping at the seams.
If sore shoulders and a bag that's seen better days en route to your weekend retreat doesn't sound like your cup of tea, then it's time to consider refreshing your go-to luggage. Ahead are 19 duffel bags that will serve to better your travel style, not cramp it. Whether you're packing a bag for a bon voyage or just a morning commute to the gym, you deserve to give yourself a break with these hassle-free options.
